APIs are a critical component of a successful modern business, forming not just the backend plumbing for your software, but, as Gartner advocates, forms the basis of your digital strategy. There are many considerations when it comes to building and managing your APIs, such as ensuring that you consider the ease that a client, not just an application, can interact with an API.
While building and maintaining APIs is not overly complicated, it is a tedious and long process that drains valuable engineering time that could otherwise be allocated to your waiting roadmap.
